Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

P. Richard Talley, for the Defendant-Appellant, Mark Dunlap.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; Kyle Hixson, Assistant Attorney General; James Dunn, District Attorney General; and Ashley D. McDermott, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MCMULLEN

The Defendant-Appellant, Mark Dunlap, appeals from the Sevier County Circuit Court’s order revoking his community corrections sentence. The Defendant previously entered guilty pleas to kidnapping, aggravated assault, attempted aggravated burglary, and vandalism. Pursuant to the plea agreement, the trial court sentenced the Defendant to an effective sentence of six years, which was suspended to time served with the balance of his sentence to be served in the community corrections program. On appeal, the Defendant argues that the trial court erred in ordering the Defendant to serve his sentences in confinement after revoking his community corrections and erred in imposing consecutive sentencing. Upon review, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
